Senator MURRAY (Western Australia) (9.58 a.m.)—I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes the rejection by a majority of the states and territories of Graeme Samuel as nominee Deputy Chairman of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission;

(b) asks the Federal Government:

(i) to ensure that it consults fully with the state and territory governments regarding Professor Fels' replacement, and

(ii) to establish criteria for the selection and appointment process that include not just selection on merit, but that any candidate should be demonstrably independent, and have a strong interest in consumer and small business needs.

Question agreed to.
